What's the difference between a snapshot, a commercial image and a Fine Art photograph? The answer, of course, is subjective and very much "in the eyes" (and minds) of the photographer and individuals viewing the work.

This group will consider what makes photography rather unique among the Visual Arts. Light, composition, intent, and technique are a short list of topics we'll explore, both in the studio and on location.

Take a look at our past and upcoming meetings and workshops, and consider joining us if you're seriously interested in advancing your craft and expanding your vision. It doesn't matter whether you shoot with a film or digital camera, a Polaroid or a plastic toy camera; creating art is not about the tools you choose to use.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
